Certain methoxyacrylic acid derivatives are proposed as active compounds in pesticides in the literature. However, the biological properties of these known compounds are not completely satisfactory in the field of pest control, and for thisreason there is the need to provide further compounds having pest control properties, in particular for control of insects and representatives of the order Acarina, and in particular for control of phytopathogenic microorganisms, this object beingachieved according to the invention by providing the present compounds of the formula (I).

Some of the compounds of the formula (I) and of the formulae (III), (IV) and (VI) defined below contain asymmetric carbon atoms, which means that the compounds can occur in an optically active form. Because of the presence of the C=X and theoximino double bonds, the compounds can occur in the E and Z isomer forms. Atropisomers of the compounds can furthermore occur. The formulae (I), (III), (IV) and (VI) are intended to include all these possible isomeric forms and mixtures thereof, forexample racemates or E/Z isomer mixtures, and, where appropriate, the salts thereof, even though this is not mentioned specifically each time.

Unless defined otherwise, the general terms used above and below are as defined below.

Examples of halogenoalkyl--as a group per se and as a structural element of other groups and compounds, such as of halogenoalkenyl--are methyl which is mono- to trisubstituted by fluorine, chlorine and/or bromine, such as CHF.sub.2 orCF.sub.3 ; ethyl which is mono- to penta-substituted by fluorine, chlorine and/or bromine, such as CH.sub.2 CF.sub.3, CF.sub.2 CF.sub.3, CF.sub.2 CC.sub.3, CF.sub.2 CHCl.sub.2, CF.sub.2 CHF.sub.2, CF.sub.2 CFCl.sub.2, CF.sub.2 CHBr.sub.2, CF.sub.2 CHClF,CF.sub.2 CHBrF or CCIFCHClF; propyl or isopropyl which is mono- to heptasubstituted by fluorine, chlorine and/or bromine, such as CH.sub.2 CHBrCH.sub.2 Br, CF.sub.2 CHFCF.sub.3, CH.sub.2 CF.sub.2 CF.sub.3 or CH(CF.sub.3).sub.2 ; and butyl or one of itsisomers which is mono- to nonasubstituted by fluorine, chlorine and/or bromine, such as CF(CF.sub.3)CHFCF.sub.3 or CH.sub.2 (CF.sub.2).sub.2 CF.sub.3. Halogenoalkenyl is, for example, CH.sub.2 CH.dbd.CHCl, CH.sub.2 CH.dbd.CCl.sub.2, CH.sub.2CF.dbd.CF.sub.2 or CH.sub.2 CH.dbd.CHCH.sub.2 Br. Halogenoalkynyl is, for example, CH.sub.2 C.ident.CF, CH.sub.2 C.ident.CCH.sub.2 Cl or CF.sub.2 CF.sub.2 C.ident.CCH.sub.2 F.

Some compounds of the formula (I) and of the formulae (III), (IV) and (VI) defined below can, as is familiar to the expert, exist as tautomers, in particular if R.sub.7 is H. The compounds of the formulae (I), (III), (IV) and (VI) above and beloware therefore to be understood as also meaning corresponding tautomers, although the latter are not mentioned specifically in each case.

Compounds of the formula (I) and of the formulae (III), (IV) and (VI) defined below which have at least one basic centre can form, for example, acid addition salts. These are formed, for example, with strong inorganic acids, such as mineralacids, for example perchloric acid, sulfuric acid, nitric acid, nitrous acid, a phosphoric acid or a hydrogen halide acid, with strong organic carboxylic acids, such as C.sub.1 -C.sub.4 alkanecarboxylic acids which are unsubstituted or substituted, forexample by halogen, for example acetic acid, such as saturated or unsaturated dicarboxylic acids, for example oxalic, malonic, succinic, maleic, fumaric or phthalic acid, such as hydroxycarboxylic acids, for example ascorbic, lactic, malic, tartaric orcitric acid, or such as benzoic acid, or with organic sulfonic acids, such as C.sub.1 -C.sub.4 alkane- or arylsulfonic acids which are unsubstituted or substituted, for example by halogen, for example methane- or p-toluenesulfonic acid. Compounds of theformula (I) with at least one acid group can furthermore form salts with bases. Suitable salts with bases are, for example, metal salts, such as alkali metal or alkaline earth metal salts, for example sodium, potassium or magnesium salts, or salts withammonia or an organic amine, such as morpholine, piperidine, pyrrolidine, a mono-, di- or tri-lower alkylamine, for example ethyl-, diethyl-, triethyl- or dimethylpropylamine, or a mono-, di- or trihydroxy-lower alkylamine, for example mono-, di- ortriethanolamine. Where appropriate, corresponding inner salts can furthermore be formed. Agrochemically advantageous salts are preferred in the context of the invention; However, the invention also relates to salts which have disadvantages foragrochemical uses, for example salts which are toxic to bees or fish, which are employed, for example, for isolation or purification of free compounds of the formula (I) or agrochemically usable salts thereof. As a result of the close relationshipbetween the compounds of the formula (I) in the free form and in the form of their salts, free compounds of the formula (I) or their salts above and below are accordingly and appropriately also to be understood as meaning the corresponding salts or,respectively, free compounds of the formula (I), where appropriate. The same applies to tautomers of compounds of the formulae (I), (III), (IV) and (VI) and salts thereof. In general, in each case the free form is preferred.

The compounds of the formulae (I), (II), (Ill), (IV), (V) and (VI) can be present in the form of one of the possible isomers or as a mixture thereof, for example depending on the number and the absolute and relative configuration of theasymmetric carbon atoms, as pure isomers, such as antipodes and/or diastereomers, or as isomer mixtures, such as enantiomer mixtures, for example racemates, diastereomer mixtures or racemate mixtures; the invention relates both to the pure isomers and toall the possible isomer mixtures and is in each case to be understood accordingly above and below, although stereochemical details are not mentioned specifically in every case.

Because of the physico-chemical differences of the constituents, diastereomer mixtures and racemate mixtures of compounds of the formulae (I), (II), (Ill), (IV), (V) and (VI) obtainable according to the process--depending on the choice ofstarting substances and procedures--or in another manner can be separated into the pure diasteromers or racemates in a known manner, for example by fractional crystallization, distillation and/or chromatography.

Correspondingly obtainable enantiomer mixtures, such as racemates, can be separated into the optical antipodes by known methods, for example by recrystallization from an optically active solvent, by chromatography over chiral adsorbents, forexample high pressure liquid chromatography (HPLC) on acetylcellulose, with the aid of suitable microorganisms, by cleavage with specific, immobilized enzymes, or via the formation of inclusion compounds, for example using chiral crown ethers, only oneenantiomer being complexed.

As well as by separation of corresponding isomer mixtures, pure diastereomers or enantiomers can also be obtained according to the invention by generally known methods of diastereoselective or enantioselective synthesis, for example by carryingout the process according to the invention with educts with correspondingly suitable stereochemistry.

In each case the more biologically active isomer, for example enantiomer, or isomer mixture, for example enanfiomer mixture, is advantageously isolated or synthesized, if the individual components have a different biological activity.

The compounds of the formulae (I), (II), (Ill), (IV), (V) and (VI) can also be obtained in the form of their hydrates and/or include other solvents, for example solvents which may be used for crystallization of compounds present in solid form.

The invention relates to all those embodiments of the process in which a compound obtainable at any stage of the process is used as a starting substance or intermediate product and all or some of the missing steps are carried out, or a startingsubstance is used in the form of a derivative or salt and/or its racemates or antipodes or, in particular, is formed under the reaction conditions.

In the process of the present invention, those starting substances and intermediates which lead to the compounds of the formula (I) defined above as particularly valuable or preferably used.

The invention particularly relates to the preparation processes described in Examples H1a) to e).

The invention likewise relates to starting substances and intermediate products used according to the invention for the preparation of compounds of the formula (I) and to their use and processes for their preparation, in particular the compoundsof the formulae (III), (IV) and (VI), which are novel. In particular, the compounds of the formulae (Ill) and (VI) can be prepared analogously to Examples H1c) and H1b) respectively.

The compounds of the formula (I) according to the invention are already preventively and/or curatively valuable active compounds with a very favourable biocidal spectrum even at low rates of concentration in the field of pest control, and at thesame time show favourable tolerance by warm-blooded animals, fish and plants. The active compounds according to the invention are active against all or individual stages of development of normally sensitive and also of resistant animal pests, such asinsects and representatives of the order Acarina, and phytopathogenic fungi. The insecticidal, ovicidal and/or acaricidal action of the active compounds according to the invention can manifest itself here directly, i.e. in mortality of the pests, whichoccurs immediately or only after some time, for example during moulting, or of their eggs, or indirectly, for example in reduced ovi position and/or hatching rate, the good action corresponding to a mortality rate of at least 50 to 60%.

Using the active compounds according to the invention, in particular, pests of the type mentioned which occur on plants, in particular on useful and ornamental plants in agriculture, in horticulture and in forestry, or on parts, such as fruit,blossom, foliage, stems, tubers or roots, of such plants can be controlled, i.e. checked or destroyed, in some cases parts of plants which grow on later also additionally being protected against these pests.

Target cultures are, in particular, cereals, such as wheat, barley, rye, oats, rice, maize or sorghum; beet, such as sugar-beet or fodder beet; fruit, for example pomaceous fruit, stone fruit and soft fruit, such as apples, pears, plums, peaches,almonds, cherries or berries, for example strawberries, raspberries or blackberries; pulses, such as beans, lentils, peas or soya; oil crops, such as oilseed rape, mustard, poppy, olive, sunflower, coconut, castor, cacao or groundnut; cucumber plants,such as pumpkins, cucumbers or melons; fibre plants, such as cotton, flax, hemp or jute; citrus fruits, such as oranges, lemons, grapefruit or mandarins; vegetables, such as spinach, lettuce, asparagus, cabbage varieties, carrots, onions, tomatoes,potatoes or capsicums; laurel plants, such as avocado, cinnamonium or camphor; and tobacco, nuts, coffee, aubergines, sugar-cane, tea, pepper, vines, hops, banana plants, natural rubber plants and ornamental plants.

The active compounds according to the invention are particularly suitable for controlling insects and representatives of the order Acarina, in particular phytopathogenic feeding insects, such as Anthonomus grandis, Diabrotica balteata, Heliothisvirescens larvae, Plutella xylostella and Spodoptera littoralis larvae, and spider mites, such as Tetranychus spp., in cotton, fruit, maize, soya, rape and vegetable crops.

Other fields of use of the active compounds according to the invention are the protection of stores and warehouses and of material and in the hygiene sector, in particular the protection of pets and productive livestock against pests of the typementioned.

The invention therefore also relates to pesticides such as, to be chosen according to the required aims and given circumstances, emulsifiable concentrates, suspension concentrates, directly sprayable or dilutable solutions, spreadable pastes,dilute emulsions, soluble powders, dispersible powders, wettable powders, dusts, granules or encapsulations in polymeric substances which comprise--at least--one of the active compounds according to the invention.

The active compound is employed in these compositions in the pure form, a solid active compound, for example, in a specific particle size, or, preferably, together with--at least--one of the auxiliaries customary in formulation technology, suchas extenders, for example solvents or solid carriers, or such as surface-active compounds (surfactants). The compositions may also contain UV-stabilizers, such as a benzotriazole-, a benzophenone-, a oxalic acid anilide-, a cinnamic acid- or ans-triazine-derivative.

Solvents are, for example: non-hydrogenated or partly hydrogenated aromatic hydrocarbons, preferably fractions C.sub.8 to C.sub.12 of alkylbenzenes, such as xylene mixtures, alkylated naphthalenes or tetrahydronaphthalene, aliphatic orcycloaliphatic hydrocarbons, such as paraffins or cyclohexane, alcohols, such as ethanol, propanol or butanol, glycols and ethers and esters thereof, such as propylene glycol, dipropylene glycol ether, ethylene glycol or ethylene glycol monomethyl or-ethyl ether, ketones, such as cyclohexanone, isophorone or diacetone alcohol, strongly polar solvents, such as N-methylpyrrolid-2-one, dimethyl sulfoxide or N,N-dimethylformamide, water, non-epoxidized or epoxidized plant oils, such as non-epoxidized orepoxidized rapeseed, castor, coconut or soya oil, and silicone oils.

The solid carriers used, for example for dusts and dispersible powders, are as a rule natural rock powders, such as calcite, talc, kaolin, montmorillonite or attapulgite. Highly disperse silicic acids or highly disperse absorbent polymers canalso be added to improve the physical properties. Granular adsorptive granule carriers are porous types, such as pumice, crushed brick, sepiolite or bentonite, and non-sorbent carrier materials are calcite or sand. A large number of granular materialsof inorganic or organic nature can furthermore be used, in particular dolomite or comminuted plant residues.

Surface-active compounds are, depending on the nature of the active compound to be formulated, nonionic, cationic and/or anionic surfactants or surfactant mixtures with good emulsifying, dispersing and wetting properties. The surfactants listedbelow are to be regarded only as examples; many other surfactants which are customary in formulation technology and are suitable according to the invention are described in the relevant literature.

Nonionic surfactants are, in particular, polyglycol ether derivatives of aliphatic or cycloaliphatic alcohols, saturated or unsaturated fatty acids and alkylphenols, which can contain 3 to 30 glycol ether groups and 8 to 20 carbon atoms in the(aliphatic) hydrocarbon radical and 6 to 18 carbon atoms in the alkyl radical of the alkylphenols. Substances which are furthermore suitable are water-soluble polyethylene oxide adducts, containing 20 to 250 ethylene glycol ether and 10 to 100 propyleneglycol ether groups, on propylene glycol, ethylene diaminopolypropylene glycol and alkyl polypropylene glycol having 1 to 10 carbon atoms in the alkyl chain. The compounds mentioned usually contain 1 to 5 ethylene glycol units per propylene glycol unit. Examples are nonylphenol-polyethoxyethanols, castor oil polyglycol ethers, polypropylene-polyethylene oxide adducts, tributylphenoxypolyethoxyethanol, polyethylene glycol and octylphenoxypolyethoxyethanol. Other substances are fatty acid esters ofpolyoxyethylene sorbitan, such as polyoxyethylene sorbitan trioleate.

The cationic surfactants are, in particular, quaternary ammonium salts which contain, as substituents, at least one alkyl radical having 8 to 22 C atoms and, as further substituents, lower, non-halogenated or halogenated alkyl, benzyl or lowerhydroxyalkyl radicals. The salts are preferably in the form of halides, methyl-sulfates or ethyl-sulfates. Examples are stearyl-trimethyl-ammonium chloride and benzyl-di-(2-chloroethyl)-ethyl-ammonium bromide.

Suitable anionic surfactants can be both water-soluble soaps and water-soluble synthetic surface-active compounds. Suitable soaps are the alkali metal, alkaline earth metal and substituted or unsubstituted ammonium salts of higher fatty acids(C.sub.10 -C.sub.22), such as the sodium or potassium salts of oleic or stearic acid, or of naturally occurring fatty acid mixtures, which can be obtained, for example, from coconut oil or tall oil; and furthermore also the fatty acid methyl-taurinesalts. However, synthetic surfactants are more frequently used, in particular fatty sulfonates, fatty sulfates, sulfonated benzimidazole derivatives or alkylarylsulfonates. The fatty sulfonates and sulfates are as a rule in the form of alkali metal,alkaline earth metal or substituted or unsubstituted ammonium salts and in general have an alkyl radical of 8 to 22 C atoms, alkyl also including the alkyl moiety of acyl radicals; examples are the sodium or calcium salt of ligninsulfonic acid, ofdodecylsulfuric acid ester or of a fatty alcohol sulfate mixture prepared from naturally occurring fatty acids. These also include the salts of sulfuric acid esters and sulfonic acids of fatty alcoholethylene oxide adducts. The sulfonated benzimidazolederivatives preferably contain 2 sulfonic acid groups and a fatty acid radical having about 8 to 22 C atoms. Alkylarylsulfonates are, for example, the sodium, calcium or triethanolammonium salts of dodecylbenzenesulfonic acid, ofdibutyinaphthalenesulfonic acid or of a naphthalenesulfonic acidformaldehyde condensation product. Corresponding phosphates, such as salts of the phosphoric acid ester of a p-nonylphenol-(4-14)-ethylene oxide adduct or phospholipids, can further also beused.

The compositions as a rule comprise 0.1 to 99%, in particular 0.1 to 95%, of active compound and 1 to 99.9%, in particular 5 to 99.9%, of--at least--one solid or liquid auxiliary, it being possible as a rule for 0 to 25%, in particular 0.1 to20%, of the composition to be surfactants (% is in each case per cent by weight). While concentrated compositions are more preferred as commercial goods, the end user as a rule uses dilute compositions which comprise considerably lower concentrations ofactive compound. Preferred compositions are composed, in particular, as follows (%=per cent by weight):

Emulsifiable concentrates: Active compound: 1 to 90%, preferably 5 to 20% Surfactant: 1 to 30%, preferably 10 to 20% Solvent: 5 to 98%, preferably 70 to 85%

Dusts: Active compound: 0.1 to 10%, preferably 0.1 to 1% Solid carrier 99.9 to 90%, preferably 99.9 to 99%

Suspension concentrates: Active compound: 5 to 75%, preferably 10 to 50% Water: 94 to 24%, preferably 88 to 30% Surfactant: 1 to 40%, preferably 2 to 30%

Wettable powders: Active compound: 0.5 to 90%, preferably 1 to 80% Surfactant: 0.5 to 20%, preferably 1 to 15% Solid carrier 5 to 99%, preferably 15 to 98%

Granules: Active compound: 0.5 to 30%, preferably 3 to 15% Solid carrier 99.5 to 70%, preferably 97 to 85%

The action of the compositions according to the invention can be extended considerably and adapted to given circumstances by addition of other insecticidal, acaricidal and/or fungicidal active compounds. Active compound additions here are, forexample, representatives of the following classes of active compounds: organic phosphorus compounds, nitrophenols and derivatives, formamidines, ureas, carbamates, pyrethroids, chlorinated hydrocarbons and Bacillus thuringiensis preparations. Thecompositions according to the invention can also comprise further solid or liquid auxiliaries, such as stabilizers, for example non-epoxidized or epoxidized vegetable oils (for example epoxidized coconut oil, rapeseed oil or soya oil), defoamers, forexample silicone oil, preservatives, viscosity regulators, binders and/or tackifiers, as well as fertilizers or other active compounds for achieving special effects, for example bactericides, nematicides, molluscicides or selective herbicides.

The compositions according to the invention are prepared in a known manner, in the absence of auxiliaries, for example, by grinding and/or sieving a solid active compound or active compound mixture, for example to a particular particle size, andif at least one auxiliary is present, for example, by intimate mixing and/or grinding of the active compound or active compound mixture with the auxiliary or auxiliaries. The invention likewise relates to these processes for the preparation of thecompositions according to the invention and the use of the compounds of the formula (I) for the preparation of these compositions.

The invention furthermore relates to the methods of application for the compositions, i.e. the methods for controlling pests of the type mentioned, such as, to be chosen according to the intended aims and given circumstances, spraying, atomizing,dusting, brushing, dressing, scattering or pouring, and to the use of the compositions for controlling pests of the type mentioned. Typical rates of concentration here are between 0.1 and 1000 ppm, preferably between 0.1 and 500 ppm, of active compound. The rates of application per hectare are in general 1 to 2000 g of active compound per hectare, in particular 10 to 1000 g/ha, preferably 20 to 600 g/ha.

A preferred method of application in the field of crop protection is application to the foliage of the plants (foliar application), where the application frequency and rate of application can be determined according to the danger of infestationby the particular pests. However, the active compound can also enter the plants via the root system (systemic action) by soaking the locus of the plants with a liquid composition or incorporating the active compound in solid form into the locus of theplants, for example into the soil, for example in the form of granules (soil application). In paddy rice crops, such granules can be metered into the flooded rice field.

The compositions according to the invention are also suitable for protection of plant propagation material, for example seed, such as fruit, tubers or grain, or plant seedlings, against fungal infections and animal pests. In this case, thepropagation material can be treated with the composition before planting out, and seed, for example, can be dressed before sowing. The active compounds according to the invention can also be applied to seed grains (coating) either by soaking the grainsin a liquid composition or coating them with a solid composition. The composition can also be applied to the site of planting out during planting out of the propagation material, for example into the seed furrow during sowing. The invention furthermorerelates to these treatment methods for plant propagation material and the plant propagation material thus treated.

The following examples serve to illustrate the invention. They do not limit the invention. Temperatures are stated in degrees Celsius.

After 2 days, thegrains are laid out on suitable agar dishes, and after a further 4 days the development of the fungus colonies around the grains is evaluated. The number and size of the fungus colonies are used to evaluate the test substance.

Compounds of Tables 1 to 118 in some cases show a good action, i.e. inhibition of the fungus colonies. In particular, the disease is suppressed completely (0-5% infestation) with compounds 1.51, 1.62 to 1.64, 2.22, 2.23, 2.39, 2.44, 2.49, 2.52,3.22 to 3.24, 3.35, 3.45 to 3.67, 3.53 and 3.60.

Example B12

Action against Colletotrichum Lagenarium on Cucumbers

After being grown for 2 weeks, cucumber plants are sprayed with a spray liquor (concentration 0.002%). After 2 days, the plants are infected with a spore suspension (1.5.times.10.sup.5 spores/ml) of the fungus and incubated at 23.degree. C. andhigh atmospheric humidity for 36 hours. The incubation is then continued under normal atmospheric humidity at about 22-23.degree. C. The fungus infestation which has occurred is evaluated 8 days after infection. Untreated but infected control plantsshow a fungus infestation of 100%.

The compounds of Tables 1 to 118 cause in some cases an almost complete inhibition of the disease infestation.

Example B13

Action against Fusarium Nivale on Rye

Rye of the Tetrahell variety naturally infected with Fusarium nivale is dressed on a mixing roll with the fungicide to be tested, the following concentrations being applied: 20 or 6 ppm of active substance (based on the weight of the seed).

The infected and treated rye is sown in October in the open with a sowing machine on plots of 3 m length and 6 seed rows. 3 repeats per concentration.

Until the infestation is evaluated, the test crop is cultured under normal field conditions (preferably in a region with blanket snow cover during the winter months).

To evaluate the phytotoxicity, the seed emergence is rated in Autumn and the crop densities/stocking is rated in Spring.

To determine the activity of the active compound, the percentage proportion of Fusarium-infested plants is counted in the Spring, immediately after melting of the snow. The number of infested plants was less than 5% in the present case. Theplants which had emerged had a healthy appearance. In particular, the disease is suppressed completely (0-5% infestation) with compounds 1.57, 1.62 to 1.64, 1.79, 2.23, 2.35, 2.39, 2.44, 2.49, 2.52, 2.59, 3.22 to 3.24, 3.39, 3.45 to 3.67, 3.53 and 3.60.

Example B14

Action against Septoria Nodonim on Wheat

Wheat plants are sprayed in the 3-leaf stage with a spray liquor (60 ppm of active substance) prepared from a wettable powder of the active substances (2.8:1).

After 24 hours, the treated plants are infected with a conidia suspension of the fungus. The plants are then incubated at 90-100% relative atmospheric humidity for 2 days and placed in a greenhouse at 20-24.degree. C. for a further 10 days. 13days after infection, the fungus infestation is evaluated. Less than 1% of the wheat plants show an infestation.

Example B15

Action against Rhizoctonia Solani on Rice

Protective Local Soil Application:

Rice plants 10 days old are watered thoroughly with a suspension (spray liquor) prepared from the formulated test substance, without contaminating the above-ground parts of the plants. The plants are infected three days later by placing a barleystraw infected with Rhizoctonia solani between the rice plants in each pot. After incubation in a climatically controlled chamber at a daytime temperature of 29.degree. C. and night time temperature of 26.degree. C. and 95% relative atmospherichumidity for 6 days, the fungus infestation is evaluated. Less than 5% of the rice plants showed an infestation. The plants had a healthy appearance.

Protective Local Leaf Application

Rice plants 12 days old are sprayed with a suspension prepared from the formulated test substances. The plants are infected one day later by placing a barley straw infected with Rhizoctonia solani between the rice plants in each pot. Afterincubation in a climatically controlled chamber at a daytime temperature of 29.degree. C. and night time temperature of 26.degree. C. and 95% relative atmospheric humidity for 6 days, the test plants are rated. Untreated but infected control plantsshow a fungus infestation of 100%. The compounds of Tables 1 to 118 in some cases cause complete inhibition of the disease infestation.
